I was on a limited budget, so I went with the Onkyo S780 I think it is. Got it for ~$500. I've been very happy with it. It doesn't have the sound of a $5000 system and isn't really all that great for music, but for TV and movies, it's pretty awesome - especially considering the price.

my pops and i running jbl b/c i got them for less than anyone else can and with basically 15k retail i spent under 4 so i'm happy. however, my dad's friend has a set of Wilson Alexandria X2's for his front towers, Maxx 2's for his rear channels, and i have no idea what center channel he has. that's an amazing setup, next time i'm there which will be september i think, i'll get pics.

My suggestion: go out and demo stuff locally, although BB, CC, etc...mostly have junk, but you can get an idea. Do some researching on a few HT forums and see what others like and have had good luck with. There are several online only retailers with very nice stuff for decent prices.

You do have a big room to fill, so to do it justice you're going to need some decent stuff, not some $500 HTIB. Also look into DIY, especially for the sub.

IMO sub and center channel make THE most difference/impact, so don't skimp there.

FWIW I run a 6.1 set up with Klipsch Legends, including the center channel which is a tower that I converted and 2 HUGE subs with 2 Tempests in each one. I'm more on the extreme side though, but it does add greatly to the viewing experience.

When it comes to home subwoofers, definetly look into SVSounds, unless you do end up with a DIY.

As for the rest, look into http://www.ascendacoustics.com/ .

Very good quality speakers for a good price.
